I got the pulsatin' rhythmical remedy

So yesterday I read about a new technique for doing uber-closeup macro shots. A technique for which I already have pretty good equipment, maybe a $15 adapter is all I need. I went home and tried it out and it is unbelievable. I have the equipment to, in enough light, make a space that is roughly three to four millimeters wide take up the entire field of view. That's with SLR, lenses and film, not digital. It's pretty fucking amazing. I'm excited to get some good ubermacro shots in.

Um, to give you some idea of scale, that would be roughly the size of three hyphens in size 10 or 12 point. -- A 4 x 6 print of an image where that bit of punctuation takes up the entire thing. I don't know that I'll ever get to use it that close up though, the vignetting is pretty awful, but it's cool to know I could if I wanted to.
